Do you believe if I travel all the way to western part of Java, Indonesia merely for an exquisite dinner? NO? Of course NOT. Well, if I am a billionaire, why not? BUT sadly I am not.
You don’t need to fly to Indonesia but spend a few bucks on taxi to KLCC instead for fine dining in House of Sudanese Food. The place I called the heaven of Indonesian food.
This is not the first time that I visited this restaurant. The cozy modern Indonesian décor and table arrangement make this place outshines others for a wonderful lunch or dinner.
What attracts me to revisit this restaurant is Emping (Buah Belinjau in Malay term), fried local fruit cracker. The taste is slightly milky and bitter but the dip lime sambal (chili) sauce revitalizes the taste of this appetizer.
This restaurant serves famous Sudanese “Dancing” fish. So, with no hesitation, this dish is a must. This dish tastes as good as the food presentation. Although the fish is deep fried, the flesh is still juicy.
The waitress recommended Sudanese Chicken Rendang. From the look, it is nothing special but the thick gravy is full with the richness taste of spices. Yummie!
Many called me carnivore. So, I decided to order Fried Kailan to balance up my diet. Honestly, I don’t know how to appreciate this dish as it tasted green only
Cumi-cumi bakar (Charcoal grilled squid with sweet sauce) is another dish that attracts me. Why? The dish name sounds so cute. At first, I wonder what is so special about this dish? But after the first bite, I am like WOW.. I just want more…
Ice kacang is my favorite but Sudanese Ice Kacang? I never try before. So, I decided to go for it. It serves with cendol, peanuts, longan, cincau, corn, rose syrup, milk etc. The combination of them make this dessert marvelous.
It is always satisfying to start a meal with slightly bitter, Emping to excite your taste bud before trying out others and end with sweet dessert, Sudanese Ice Kacang . I am very satisfied with this dinner and only spend about RM 105 for two. Great deal isn’t it?
House of Sundanese Food
Lot 4-12. Level 4, Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur.
A lot of people ask me where I usually have my lunch? It is kind of difficult to explain because I can be adventurous sometime. Adventurous? My close friend will laugh when I said this. Usually I just follow a big crowd during normal working hours because I really have no clue where would be the best place.
On the other side, during offwork, I like to hunt for food. Sometimes, I can drive all the way to Penang to have my favourite laksa and muo chi or to Singapore to eat my favourite dumpling soup. Well, I am not driving any further this time but came across Ayam Penyet – AP in KLCC recently while doing my food hunting.
Don’t ask me what is AP stands for but I guess is Ayam Penyet . This stall is located on second floor in Signature foodcourt. Why I chose to blog about this stall? What so special about Ayam Penyet? Well, my maid from Indonesia used to prepare Ayam Penyet for me and I just love it. So, I guess, Ayam Penyet here is also from Indonesia but who cares? As long as it taste good right?
Let me remind you that the que might be very long during normal lunch hours. The service here is very fast too. Despite a lot of customer, I normally wait for about 5 min to 10 min max. The set that I usually ordered is Ayam Penyet Set Lunch. They also served empel (beef) and a whole other long list.
The set comes with Ayam (of course .. duh), tempe, boiled long beans and vegetable with cucumber and tomatoes. What you need to becareful is the sambal. It tastes good but it is really really spicy. I need to particularly emphasize on this. As a chillies lover, my tolerance against chillies is considered better than average but I nearly cry when I first taste it.
Now come to the main highlight. The chicken to me is kind of dry but I guess this is how it should be. The crunchy thinggy (I have no clue what it is) taste really good. If can, ask for more … hehe… I normally ‘wet’ my rice with the soup because the soup fits my taste.
This set only cost about RM 8.80. I wouldn’t consider this as expensive considering that you are in KLCC and the average price in this foodcourt is about RM 8. So this is a perfect lunch set for me once in awhile. Lastly, remember when I said about the chillies earlier, please take extra precaution when you order this
